Justin Verlander after loss: 'It starts and ends with me'

Justin Verlander after loss: 'It starts and ends with me'

For the first three innings, it was the best I felt so far this season, Verlander said. HOUSTON -- Ten starts into the 2017 season, Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander doesn't have the kind of numbers that put him on the brink of a Cy Young in 2016. But even after another frustrating start on Thursday night he's convinced that he's not far away. "For the first three innings, it was the best I felt so far this season," Verlander said. Then the fourth inning hit. Verlander allowed three home runs in one inning for only the second time in his career (the other...

Astros 7, Tigers 6: Justin Verlander’s struggles continue as Detroit drops series

Verlander gave up six runs in a game the Tigers would like to have back. The Detroit Tigers had plenty of chances to earn a hard-fought series split against the Houston Astros, but could not capitalize. A rough outing from Justin Verlander and a few too many mistakes resulted in a 7-6 loss on getaway day in Houston. The Tigers threatened early and often in this game against Astros starter Mike Fiers. Miguel Cabrera doubled with two outs in the first inning, but was thrown out at home plate after a sharp single by Victor Martinez to end the frame. The Tigers got on the board in the second,...

Tigers vs. Angels Preview: Detroit aims for series win with Justin Verlander on the mound

A win would clinch Detroit’s first series win in Anaheim since 2009. Well, this sure seems promising. Following Detroit’s late-inning 4-3 win over the Angels on Saturday, the Tigers have a chance to clinch their first series win in 2009. They have already fared better out west than in recent years — this is the first season they won multiple games at Angels Stadium since 2010 — but a win would also seal a 5-4 record on their nine-game trip. Better yet, the Tigers have Justin Verlander on the mound. His ERA still isn’t up to the standard he (re)set last year, but his last few...

After hitting 99 mph at end of start, Justin Verlander feels 'really close'

Justin Verlanders numbers may not look Cy Young-like just yet, but dont let that fool you. PHOENIX -- Justin Verlander's numbers may not look Cy Young-like just yet.  But don't let that fool you.  Even on a night like Tuesday, when it took him a few innings to find his rhythm, Verlander still recorded 16 swings-and-misses and seven strikeouts. And when he needed extra juice, he rared back and hit 99 mph on his 100th and 101st pitches. "I was hoping for 100," Verlander said. "It's been a while." Verlander and the Tigers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-3 on...
